Thanks to all you lovelies that offered your sympathies and good advise for my bung foot, you are all so special. This is what I love about blogging, we share and we care, in fact we are a top notch bunch of birds!
So today I went on my airport run and I decided that after work I would do the same drive because there are things I love on this drive that I wanted to take photos of. Also it is on my way to Dawns place so why not kill two birds with one stone, as the saying goes!
Every week I drive past this beautiful bull, in all weather he is out there grazing and cruising. I am so happy that he has a mate and a paddock full of long grass. Across the road today was a huge herd of assorted gorgeous cows, and believe me some were lined up at the fence teasing him. When I parked the car he came to the fence and called out my name, 'suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuue' which sort of sounded like 'muuuuuuuuuuuuuuue', but I knew he was saying 'Sue'.
I could take him home!!
I love the wild flowers that grow on the side of the road, to most people these look like weeds, but to me they are just as pretty as any fancy smancy thing you could line up in your garden at home. In fact I do have the odd flowering weed growing merrily beside respectable flowers, which is how it should be.
And how gorgeous is this fence, with its leisurely lean going on.
There was a paddock full of daisies and long grass and resting smack bang in the middle were these cows. Well they could be bulls, I will never know as they stayed lazying in the sunshine the entire time I was there. I think I need to live on a farm, well I know I should.
Maybe in my next life!!
And this is the red barn I want to have. A barn has to be red doesn't it? I like the rusticness of the country, it sits well with me as I just cannot maintain perfection. I am totally useless at keeping things perfect, hence my love of second hand and recycled things, and my very laid back attitude to housework and life in general.
Just before Dawns place are these horse. Aren't horses so graceful, and they so know it to. These two pranced about a bit while I was watching them. I have only ever ridden a horse once and that was when I was a slender young teenager. I fancy the idea of giving it another go but they are so high up and I am so much more than I used to be, maybe too much for a horse to cope with. Who knows some darling old Clydesdale might be the ticket!
Because I know most of you love Dawns colourful quirky creations here are some for you to feast your eyes on. I love the sense of humor she has by putting a bath on the roof of a house!! The flowers are the tops to short flower totems.
Some of these I would have shared
before they were cooked and coloured.
Beautiful countryside at every glance.
Yep, I need to live in the country.
old bark and buttercups!!
I think I am obsessed with
Mother Nature at her very best!
This is a bit of a 'PS' from the pottery, and aren't they wicked?? Made specially for a shop and they didn't sell, why I do not know. But rest assure these three girls have loving homes to go to.
Milly and Webb are father and daughter and so bloody cute. They love me and follow me around when ever I visit. They are buggers for letting of a quiet fart while they are sleeping and they get the old heave ho out the door instantly!! Just look at those adorable faces, butter wouldn't melt.
And what did I wear out today??
The dress/top I scored yesterday over cobalt blue dress, black leggings and lovely sandals and jewels. These were taken tonight when I had slipped into my modified sock and removed my jewels. I got Jak to take the full length shot. He asked 'why?' to which I replied, 'for my blog'. He walked off shaking his head saying 'you and your blog, you love it don't you'.
Yes, yes I do!!
